Lots of different fishing holes

Upper Credit River 1994 to the present

The Credit River fishes as two rives, with the upper section being high gradient, small, and home to brookies, baby steelhead, browns, and some Atlantics. The lower river tends to flatten out, broaden and there the quarry is steelhead and chinook salmon. The river used to get a run of coho, but that has died out.

The upper section is perfect short rod water in the 2 wt. to 4 wt. ranges. Most of the fish average under 12 inches, but there are a few big ones in the larger pools.
